I don’t believe I have mentioned here yet that I have a new job. If you’re friends with me on Facebook, you probably know. Since the third week in August I have been working as the weekend supervisor at the Nature Park Interpretive Center at Tualatin Hills Nature Park (part of the Tualatin Hills Park and Recreation District) in Beaverton, OR. Essentially, I answer phones, ring up purchases from the nature store, help district patrons register for classes, assist patrons in the nature center, assist other staff with projects, and most of all, talk to visitors about their time spent in the nature park. Quite nice, I think. Oh, and I get to post on the Facebook page too while I am there. My kind of job. Especially if a sight like this is just part of a normal day:
